Biograph Company, 636 ft., rel. June 13, 1912 dir. Mack Sennett, auth. Dell Henderson, cam. Percy Higginson cast: Mabel Normand, Fred Mace, Jack Pickford, Vivian Prescott, Tony O'Sullivan filmed: 4/1912 Location: CA copyright: June 25, 1912
Decent comedy short. Not a slap-stick comedy, though.
Mabel plays a woman (Kate) who wants to be a detective. She comes across some men planning a bomb attack...and hilarity ensues!
Well, it isn't that funny, but it's charming and cute.
Picture quality of this upload is OK, though a bit compressed. Some of the titles seem to be missing, but not to the point of confusion. My only complaint is the lack of musical accompaniment, so the viewer has to add their own...
